I bought one of these on Saturday.
It was an impulse buy. It was an open item on sale at Best Buy that was about $500 below the usual price. I have 30 days to decide whether I want to keep it. It's huge. Thing is, I can't shake the thought that "hey, that money could've gone towards remodeling the basement."
But what fun is that?

Welcome to the world of big screens. Once you have one, you'll never go back to a normal tv. I have a 57" HD Widescreen right now and love it like you wouldn't believe.
Holy crap! 57 inches? That's, like, HUGE. Mine is 42 inches, and it feels like a movie screen. By the way, Rick, whereabouts in the Manor neighborhood are you located? I'm assuming you're up the hill in the newer district, but I'm no sure.
For the record, I'm in the older area of Country Club Manor, where there are actually trees and stuff. My house is a big gray rambler on the corner of (NEVER MIND). It's the one with the huge porch with all the glass panes that make it look like a green house. Feel free to drop by if you're in the neighborhood. Just make sure I'm not sprawled naked on the couch eating Doritos. That's my "me" time.
My address is (deleted by the Dirty Mushroom) if that helps. I'm at the very top of that big fucking hill so it sucks balls running since it's always uphill on the way back no matter what direction I started. If you go west on (that one street) up to (that one drive), hang a (left or right) then take your first (left or right) onto (that one street) my place will be four houses from the end of the road. It's blue and has the number (1234) on it :-) If I can find my way around the neighborhood sometime, I'll try to stop by, hopefully not during "me" time, though. I may end up traumatized seeing the dirty mushroom in person.
Jeez, Rick. At least TRY to maintain a little anonymity. I get around 700+ visitors a day on this site, and chances are a good 300 or so of those visitors are crazy enough to do something with an exact address. At the very least, they'll sign you up for junk mail.
Heck, friends sign friends up for junk mail, you don't want to know what the freaks sign you up for.
Nice tv though, Ryan. My wife has made me promise to not replace ours anytime soon. Its HD ready but they are taking their sweet time rolling out HD in my town! Damn!
I was lonely and hoping someone would come visit :-( Actually, I just had a major brain meltdown while typing it and completely forgot until after the fact that there are people out there crazier than me. Thanks for keeping me from getting gang raped by a clan of ninja hobbits in the middle of the night. I owe ya.
On a side note, you get 700+ a day? Wow, that's amazing. How do you get your grandma to click on links to your page so many times a day?
Nice, bro! but I did buy one of these on Monday, so I'm hardly jealous.
